As this is my model I can tell you I used a Sunshine Models truss rod
kit for the superstructure.

the Steam Era Freight Car web-site, I found a couple of photos of a

underframe, only with different bolsters."
what body was used. It does tell that a Tichie underframe was used
with the exception of the bolsters which were scratch built.
I'd love to know what body was used. Take a look at it and see ifyou can tell.
that the Red Caboose wood reefer does not match the FGE 36000 series,
but is it a suitable *start* for any FGE/WFE/BRE car, in the same
manner as the Accurail kit discussed previously? (i.e., you might
have to make a new sills, fishbellies, or the like.)
